I have always loved the Tag Heuer Monza but it has always been a little bit too small for me to wear. This year Tag Heuer has released a very cool and special 40th anniversary edition Monza.
What makes this special to me is 1976 was the year I was born and I am celebrating my 40th birthday this year as well. So it’s kind of cool how that all synchronizes.
The NEW Tag Heuer Monza 40th anniversary is 42 mm in case diameter and is constructed out of titanium with blackened titanium carbide. The movement, TAG Heuer Automatic Caliber 17, 28,800 vph, 42 hour power reserve, chronograph function; Water resistance 10 bar/100m.
I love how Tag Heuer payed homage and preserved the details from the original seventies model including; the pulsometer and the tachymeter scale, the original font on the dial, and Heuer’s pre-TAG logo. The price is not bad at CHF 4,900 or slightly over $5,000.
